For Williams – a Tulsa, Oklahoma based energy company which specializes in, and operates a huge network of pipelines that move about 30% of the nation’s natural gas ‑ building and operating its complex infrastructure requires specialized talent that is often hard to find.
Several years ago, Williams realized it needed to enhance its recruiting function to find the right talent to meet the specific needs of the company’s growth, business strategy, and culture. They purchased SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting (new at the time) in 2011 but experienced mixed results. Mainly, the HR department found it difficult to use the system as designed and found themselves working outside of the system to get their jobs done.
Williams decided to make recruiting a top priority. Williams’ Director of Talent Acquisition, Paul Boyett called SAP SuccessFactors and expressed his desire to make the system work to its full potential. SAP SuccessFactors named 3D Results as a partner that could help. According to Boyett,“We chose to work with 3D Results because the consultants we would be working with had been in corporate America and were HR professionals like us before entering the technology world.”
Over the next year, 3D Results and Williams worked together to eliminate manual paper-based processes, streamline the use of third-party applications, and implement winning processes for onboarding. Williams also gained access to a whole new world of data that enables it to measure its recruiting success.
As a result, according to Boyett, “We drastically changed the recruiting, onboarding, and recruiting marketing process from one that inundated applicants and recruiters with questions and forms to one that exceeds expectations and helps us quickly find the talent to meet Williams’ goals.”
